Pediped Sole Diagram
Pediped Sole Diagram
  Infant Footwear Recommendations
Flexible Sole: The sole of the shoe should be thick enough for protection but soft enough to allow the foot to move naturally. Bend the shoes to test for pliability - it should yeald with little resistence. Shoes that bend fairly easy when the toe is bent up will interfere least with the foot's natural motion. Your best bet is to look for leather or rubber soles that bend easily.
Soft Breathable Upper: Infants should go barefoot or wear lightweight, flexible footwear made of natural, breathable materials. Leather is ideal. Avoid plastic or imitation leather as it can cause excessive sweating and/or blisters. The soles should be so flexible that you can feel baby's toes through them (hard soles are absolutely out). To stay healthy, feet need to breathe and get plenty of exercise. They breathe best, and have the most freedom of movement, in shoes of leather, cloth, or canvas.
Deep, Wide Toe Box and Flat Soles: Toes have plenty of room to wiggle. (A pointed or narrow toe box should be avoided as it can squeeze the toes together and interfere with natural foot development). Look for a shoe with a broad instep and toe and a flat-as-a pancake heel.
Avoid Stiff Rubber Soles: Avoid stiff shoes for young feet. If you have difficulty bending the shoe in your hand, leave it in the store. Your baby will have even more difficulty bending the stiff shoe with his feet. Rubber soles tend to be more rounded, whereas the flatter leather soles tend to provide more stability.
  Loose, Comfortable fit: Footwear should not restrict foot movement and/or development. Straps/closures should not be constricting.
   
About Pediped

pediped recently celebrated their one year anniversary after their Spring 2005 launch and had time to reflect upon the events of the past year. They want to thank all of you who gave their new products a try and are now loyal customers. Without you, they would not be where they are today.

pediped was created by Angela Edgeworth  to be “the next best thing to bare feet.”

After her first daughter Caroline was born, she started to do a lot of thinking about footwear and the kind of shoes that would be best for her child.  She wanted a shoe that was comfortable, stylish and could be worn both indoors and out.  But most importantly, she wanted a shoe that was healthy for her child's developing feet.

After a lot of research she discovered that doctors recommended barefoot walking or a soft leather sole shoe, but the choices for infants and toddlers were limited.

pediped creates footwear that most closely resembles the natural shape of a baby's foot.  The Originals most closely mimic barefoot walking.  When children learn to walk they tend to shuffle, so rubber soles or shoes with grip, force children to change their natural stride and can actually make them trip.  Originals have a durable, slip-resistant leather sole. They're roomy so the foot can move and grip and they're flexible so your child can actually feel the floor.  The hand-stitched leather sole allows your child's foot to breathe.

Plus, Originals have two layers of the highest quality leather on the market today plus a soft foam insert, so your child's feet are protected while they're on the move, INDOORS AND OUT.  Originals are the most comfortable shoe your child will ever wear and won't want to take off.

Children's feet need to last them a lifetime so it's important to start taking care of them from birth.  pediped is designed to protect your baby's feet from crawling to those first amazing steps and into the toddler years.

Education is key, so to help you make the right choices for your child we've provided answers to the most common questions we hear from concerned parents like you, plus look for advice from doctors on how to make the right choices for your child in the “foot health” section of the website.

pediped footwear's original leather-soled line, pediped Originals , features cushioned, slip resistant leather soles and soft, flexible uppers.  Available in sizes newborn (XXS) to 18-24 months (L), pediped Originals allow children's feet to develop naturally.  They provide optimal support and protection during the developmental stages of children's  feet - from the initial crawl to first steps and beyond.
